Global Flame Retardant Chemicals Market (2021 to 2029) - Featuring Albemarle, BASF and Lanxess Among Others

·9-min read

Dublin, July 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Flame Retardant Chemicals Market Size, Market Share, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Growth Trends, Key Players, Competitive Strategies and Forecasts, 2021 to 2029" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The Flame Retardant Chemical Market was estimated to grow at a compound annual growth rate of over 5% for the forecasted period. The increased demand for flame retardant products is mainly due to stringent fire safety regulations. This report examines the quantitative aspects of the Flame Retardant Chemical Market, as well as its key drivers, challenges, growth potential, and future prospects.

Flame Retardant Chemicals Market: Overview

To reduce the flammability of consumer goods such as furniture, electronic devices, and clothing, flame retardant chemicals are added. The presence of an ignition source activates flame retardants, which are designed to prevent or slow the spread of ignition through a variety of physical and chemical means. They can be introduced as a copolymer during the polymerization process, afterwards added to the polymer during the molding or extrusion process, or applied as a topical finish (especially for textiles). Inert gases or compounds with endothermic and thermal resistance qualities are used to make flame retardants. Furthermore, the choice of a specific chemical is dependent on the material to which it is to be added, because the chemical's constituent elements react differently with fire. In 2019, more than 2 million tones of flame retardants were processed globally.

Increasing New Construction Projects Boosting the Market Growth

On the basis of end-user, construction and building dominated the market owing to increased construction activity around the world. The entire value of new construction put in place in the United States was over USD 1365 billion in 2019, is expected to illustrate a growth rate of roughly 4.5%, further increasing the demand for flame retardant chemicals. Governments all over the world are establishing higher safety standards for smoke and flammability in various products. Due to increasing development activity in developing countries, the construction industry will probably emerge as one of the main consumers of flame retardant chemicals.

The global flame retardant chemicals market is also being propelled ahead by increased demand from the transportation and auto industries. In the approaching years, the demand from the home furnishing business is also predicted to increase. Other application sectors, such as electronics and wires and cables, are expected to grow steadily in the near future. The flame retardants act in two respects: they either prevent a fire from beginning or dramatically slow it down after it has started. They are used in plastics and other materials, and they have no effect on the raw material's qualities.

Adverse Impact of Covid-19 Framed a Major Set Back

In 2020, COVID-19 adversely affected the market. Because of the pandemic scenario, during the lockdown imposed by government construction and automotive works were temporarily stopped; thereby reducing the demand for flame retardants. The construction industry is, however, rapidly recovering and is expected to increase over the next several years, boosting requirements for the flammable chemical market. In addition to covid-19, rising environmental and health concerns, high pricing of flame retardant products, and rising concerns about harmful content hinder the market's expansion.

China to Be the Single Largest Market

Flame Retardant Chemical Market was dominated by Asia-Pacific for the year 2020. China alone accounts for nearly a quarter of worldwide flame retardant demand. China's high demand is fueled by the country's growing chemical and automobile industries. India is also anticipated to grow its market share in the global market as a result of increased foreign investment. In North America, on the other hand, the market will grow significantly in the coming years, because fire safety in all end products is mandatorily regulated by strict regulations. In addition, due to the growing use of these products by the automotive industry, the Europe market will show significant growth in the next few years.

The key players in the industry include Albemarle Corporation, BASF SE, Huber Engineered Materials (HEM), The DOW Chemical Company, Chemtura Corporation, Lanxess AG, NabaltecAG, ICL (Israel Chemicals Ltd.), Ciba specialty chemicals, AkzoNobel. To achieve a significant competitive advantage in this market, major players are investing in the creation of revolutionary flame-retarded products. To compete for the market's top spot, the other firms are developing halogen-free flame retardants.
